  1. Thank you for the valuable insight and reminders on the benefits of Holistic Retreats. It is nice to know in today’s fast pace world that people still take the time to honor themselves and find their balance. You mentioned “solitude” in your episode and I think the Millennial generation and the current Generation Z may be losing sight of the value of periodic solitude and some may not even know what it is. Electronics as well as Facebook, Twitter, and other social medias create a commonality to not experience any solitude or even moments of emotional and mental quiet, tranquility and perspective.

    Thank you for your reminder about the benefits of Holistic Retreats as they may be the exact answer for anyone who needs to step away from their normalcy and find or rediscover themselves and their inner-peace.
